Installing a Paved Patio in the Houston Area.

Let’s discuss one of the items that the average DIY person may not have knowledge of…polymetric sand.
What is polymeric sand? 

This is a substance used to fill in the joints when pavers are being installed.  It is comprised of a very fine material.  When it is mixed with water it creates a bonding agent.  Polymeric sand is the conduit that interlocks pavers while keeping them secured in place.  An amateur might use regular sand, but if you are thinking about years down the road, the low maintenance of your hardscape, polymeric sand is definitely the way to go.

Here are some of the advantages - You will discourage weed growth.  Polymeric sand can't prevent a weed from ever popping up between your pavers, but it will make it considerably more difficult.  It almost certainly will prolong the durability of your patio.  Polymeric sand promotes strength and longevity when using it to install pavers.  It also prevents washouts.  You will be happy that you made this choice after the first heavy rain. 

The entire idea is to be able to enjoy your paved patio for years to come.  This is not a temporary fix - it is a long-term home improvement that will not only enhance your quality of life, but increase the value of your home.  For more details on building a beautiful paved patio in the Houston area, contact Laird Landscaping voted Katy’s best of the year at 281-578-2795 or online at www.lairdlandscaping.com.

Choosing the Right Houston Landscaper.

With spring approaching it is important to assess your landscaping needs and dreams for 2016 and choose the right company to fulfill those wishes.  Choosing a company with a long track record of excellence is a great place to start.  You also want to know that they can do jobs both large and small on whatever budget you have available.

A lot of Houston area landscape companies do only one thing.  That may not be right for your needs.  How about a landscaper that is knowledgeable in all fields of land and hardscaping, architectural design and the understanding of structural integrity as well as beauty.  And, oh yeah, a landscaper that just happens to have won the award as the Best in the Business in Katy in 2015.

Only one Houston area landscaper fills the bill in all of those departments.  That is Laird Landscaping.  For well over 30 years we have beautified Houston property after property.  Don’t just dream about having a yard that is the envy of your neighborhood…make it a reality.  Visit our website at www.lairdlandscaping.com and give
